guix.install: Install R Packages with GNU Guix

This 'R' package provides a single procedure guix.install(), which allows users to install 'R' packages via 'Guix' right from within their running 'R' session. If the requested 'R' package does not exist in 'Guix' at this time, the package and all its missing dependencies will be imported recursively and the generated package definitions will be written to ~/.Rguix/packages.scm. This record of imported packages can be used later to reproduce the environment, and to add the packages in question to a proper 'Guix' channel (or 'Guix' itself). guix.install() not only supports installing packages from CRAN, but also from Bioconductor or even arbitrary 'git' or 'mercurial' repositories, replacing the need for installation via 'devtools'.
